As we move towards the darkest time of the year, we look to you to lighten all of our spirits by giving a generous end of the year gift. 2017 has been a challenging year, but Kadima continues to be a light and a resource in your community.
As we expand our activities, our expenses have gone up. We were thrilled to hire Mollie Wolf as our Youth and Family Organizer, and we’ve hired more teaching staff for our growing Kadima school. 75% of our entire budget goes to pay for the salaries of Rabbi David and our fabulous staff and faculty.
So between now and the end of June, 2018, we need to raise another $130,000. Can you help with a tax-deductible, end-of-the-year donation to Kadima?
Our Kadima Board of Directors has a challenge for all Kadima members and friends. Board members are giving, collectively, $5,000 this month. Can you help triple that amount by the end of 2017?
Every donation is generous & appreciated, no matter how modest. Each gift puts us that much closer toward keeping your Kadima community vibrant. Consider that:
$2,500 pays a Kadima teacher for a year
$360 pays for a hot shabbat lunch for the community
$36 pays for a box of shabbat candles
$18 keeps us online for three months
Your generous, tax deductible gift as this year draws to a close will make a world of difference.
Thank you so much for supporting progressive Judaism in Seattle. I am so grateful you are a part of the Kadima community.
On behalf of the Kadima board
PS - Your year-end gift today will be the lift we need in this difficult year. $50 can make a big difference in keeping Kadima the diverse and passionate resource for you during these challenging times.
